Publishers Description In this six-session small group Bible study, The Case for Christ, Lee Strobel uses his experience as a reporter for the Chicago Tribune to interview experts about the evidence for Christ from the fields of science, philosophy, and history. Teacher? Revolutionary? Messiah? Son of God? Who is Jesus of Nazareth? In the award-winning book The Case for Christ, Lee Strobel uses his experience as a tough-minded reporter to investigate history's most controversial figure. Skeptics dismiss the Jesus of the Gospels by claiming there is no evidence in the case for Christ. Lee Strobel disagrees. The former legal journalist and one-time atheist knows how to ask tough questions. His own search for the truth about Jesus led him to faith in Christ. Now Strobel invites you to retrace with him the steps in that journey. Using this guide, along with the six-session companion DVD (sold separately) you will follow Strobel on a quest for the truth about Jesus. Rejecting easy answers, you will sift through fascinating historical evidence as you weigh expert testimony. In the end, you may very well see Jesus in a compelling new way -- and, like Strobel, find your life transformed. Knowing that the credibility of any story hinges on solid facts, Strobel challenges scholars to back up their opinions with compelling evidence and cogent arguments in order to put the case for Christ to the test. Sessions include: 1. The Investigation of a Lifetime 2. Eyewitness Evidence 3. Evidence Outside of the Bible4. Analyzing Jesus 5. Evidence for the Resurrection 6. Reaching the Verdict

Reviews - What do customers think about Case For Christ Participants Guide?
informative Feb 6, 2010
Maybe I missed it, but once I received this study guide, we noticed that it needs a DVD. So, that was another purchase we had to make. Overall, it was an informative, in-depth study of the historical evidence for Christ. Some of it is well-known. Much of it is not. It made for some great conversation opportunities. However, the study guide alone would not be enough without the DVD.
Absolutely essential for small-group leaders using the video series Oct 6, 2009
When I purchased The Case for Christfor use in the midweek church service of our small congregation, I was fortunate to read in a review that the participant's guide is a necessary tool for effective group leadership of the series. The Leader's Guide which comes with the DVD set does not contain the discussion questions which are a central part of the experience as envisioned by the producers, and the Participant's Guide does not come with the set but must be purchased separately.
Although we are using the series in the context of a group of (mostly) Christian believers, and it is entirely appropriate as a Christian apologetics/educational/inspirational tool for such a group, the producers envision it as an evangelization tool for those who are skeptical or unchurched but interested in the questions of whether Jesus even existed as a historical figure, what claims the Bible actually makes about Jesus, and what basis anyone might have for accepting those claims. This is the audience to whom the series is mainly directed.
The participant's guide contains a little review and background material for each of the DVD's six sessions, but the majority of the material consists of discussion questions, questions for personal thought, and, for each session, a section on "Personal Reflection" to be read and contemplated by participants between sessions. There is ample space for notes or reflection.
The six sections (corresponding to the six sessions on the companion DVD) are 1. The Investigation of a Lifetime 2. Eyewitness Evidence 3. Evidence Outside the Bible 4. Analyzing Jesus 5. Evidence for the Resurrection 6. Reaching Your Verdict
For our group of mostly strong Christians, it has been quite sufficient for us to have one copy of this booklet available. For sessions being offered for seekers or skeptics, it would be ideal for each participant to obtain a copy.
